Instructions For Building Writing Desk
If you want a writing desk that gives you plenty of space to spread and you need storage space too, you can create your own work area that will meet these needs. Save money and live green by getting previously used or discount materials and installing a document cabinet table at home. Desirable features for a desk include large area, robustness and drawers to write supplies and files.
Choose a flat door without carving or insertions. This will be the design writing desk surface. You can find cheap doors at save yards, flea markets, yard sales and second hand stores. Get a pair of two-drawer file cabinets to support writing the table. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws. If the twist has a tab or a hack, press release. You will need to twist a little to pull them apart. Pull the door handle from both sides. If the door has a dead bolt or a separate door handle, unscrew and remove them as well. Wipe the lid down with a mild wood soap solution or kitchen cleaner. Prepare the cabinet file. Some require less fitting of file folder holders inside the drawers.
Set up a box, such as the upper right box, for deliveries. For example, add an organizer to write deliveries in the front. Leave the cabinets blank until you have them in place. Place the cabinet file at each end of the place to write the table. Put the door over the cabinet file with the door handle hole against the wall. Adjust the cupboards so that the outer edges align with each end of the door. Place a chair at the writing desk and sit in it. Check the scope of the cabinet file. Consider where you want to place your computer. If you plan to use the cabinets a lot, or prefer them closer, move them closer to the center. Set the computer and feed its cords and those of peripherals (printer, modem, backup battery) through the door handle hole. Plug the power cord into your power and power outlet.
Tips and warnings
Choose a solid door instead of one with a hollow core for this project. If you have difficulty removing the screws, spray some lubricants on them. If you move the cabinet file away from the ends of the door table, avoid placing anything heavy on the outermost ends to avoid risk of tipping. You can use a heavy plant or group of reference works to help stabilize each end of the table.
